Mubi Lands Palme d’Or Hopeful “Decision to Leave”

Mubi Lands Palme d’Or Hopeful “Decision to Leave”

The wallets are officially open and Mubi are the first to move on available Palme d’Or titles taking the rights (on several territories) for North America on Park Chan-wook‘s Decision to Leave. The title essentially becomes their first unofficial foray into the United States with a major prestige title (they had taken the same route with Benedetta in U.K theatres last year). Plans are for a fall release – so we’re looking at possible dips at Telluride, TIFF and NYFF after Cannes.

Starring Tang Wei, this is about a man who falls from a mountain peak to his death. The detective in charge of the investigation, Hae-joon (Park Hae-il), comes to meet the dead man’s wife Seo-rae (Tang Wei). When she becomes a suspect, Hae-joon finds himself slowly developing an interest in her.
